Brighton defender Matt Clarke is closing on a £5million move to West Bromwich Albion.
The 24-year-old, who cost Brighton £3.9m from Portsmouth in July 2019 and has previously been on loan at Derby County, is understood to be of ‘genuine interest’ to new West Brom manager Valerien Ismael.
Clarke spent both of the last two seasons at Pride Park, playing 81 times in all competitions and scoring one goal during his stint at the club, including against Ismael’s Barnsley last campaign.
